The purpose of this research is to develop a new procedure for generating a proactive baseline schedule for the resource-constrained project scheduling problem. The main advantage of this new procedure is that it is completely independent of the reactive policy applied. This contrasts with the traditional methods that assume a predefined reactive policy. First, we define a new robustness measure, then we introduce a branch-and-cut method for solving a sample average approximation of our original problem. In a computational experiment, we show that our procedure outperforms two other published methods, assuming different robustness measures.
